The married couples of HMCC (Covenant group) had our annual Christmas party. I really enjoy these times. Since it is hard to see all the married couples in our church at the same time, these gatherings are all the more special. Whenever we have an opportunity to gather all together, it is always a treat for us.
We are thankful that our married couples’ ministry has grown over the years. We, not only have couples with children, but we also have some newlyweds. It is exciting to even see the diversity within the various LIFE groups – from different personality, backgrounds, and even a lot of mixed racial marriages.
I particularly enjoyed getting to know some of the international couples tonight. Most of the husbands are studying to get their PhD’s. It is always good to stay connected with people from different cultures. It is a fresh reminder that many of them will go back to their countries and make a difference in their particular field. It is my prayer that in the future some of these families will be part of a church planting team.
Oh, by the way, we got a nice utensil set from our Secret Santa.
